duck eats yeast, quacks, explodes; man loses eye

duck eats yeast, quacks, explodes; man loses eye

By Gary Barwin Lillian Nećakov

Written as a vibrant discussion between Barwin and Necakov, this book-length poem takes us on a hypnagogic journey that examines many ways of seeing and experiencing the world. Although the work considers many themes, such as trauma, grief, anxiety, climate change, impending doom, war, illness, and cultural fragmentation, at its core, it argues for an unbridled creativity and beauty.
